Cen­tral Mar­ket by Hari Ho

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - 5 Things -

What is it? Hari Ho show­cases his monochro­matic por­traits of the vendors who made a liv­ing in­side the Cen­tral Mar­ket of old. When is it? Un­til Sep 10

Not many know this but be­fore be­com­ing a tourist hub, Cen­tral Mar­ket was once a busy wet mar­ket in the heart of the city. Be­fore the mar­ket was closed down over 30 years ago, Hari Ho got to know the vendors and their sto­ries. This ex­hi­bi­tion is a show­case of monochro­matic por­traits of these vendors taken by Hari. The pho­tos were ini­tially taken in color, but Hari de­cided to present them in black and white as he feels it’ll pro­vide more depth and hu­man­ity to the sub­jects.

Wei-Ling Gallery, 8 Jalan Scott, Brick­fields (03 2260 1106/weil­ing-gallery.com). Un­til Sep 10. Mon-Fri, 10am-6pm; Sat, 10am-5pm.
